Assets that count toward your licensed asset limit

Most Lansweeper subscriptions limit the number of assets you can scan. Once you've reached your licensed asset limit, scanning of new and existing assets stops until you delete some assets or upgrade your subscription.

So which assets count toward your limit? Most things you see listed when you click the Assets menu at the top of the web console count toward your licensed asset limit. There is one exception in regards to monitor assets:

So any computers, servers, network devices and manually created assets count toward your limit, but monitors without extended display data don't. Monitors are technically assets as well, but they only count toward your asset limit if they have extended display data associated with them.

For a count of all assets in your installation, click the Assets menu at the top of the web console. For a count of all "licensed assets", assets that count toward your licensed asset limit, access the Configuration\Your Lansweeper License menu.

Example scenario

Consider the following example:

  • A Lansweeper installation has a total of 450 assets listed in the Assets menu.
  • The installation is licensed for 500 assets.
  • 60 of the installation's assets are monitors.
  • 36 of the installation's monitors have extended display data, 24 do not.

In the above example, the licensed asset count of the installation would be 426. That count would also be displayed under Configuration\Your Lansweeper License. 426 is the total asset count (450) minus the 24 monitor assets that do not have extended display data associated with them. The installation can scan another 74 assets before running into its licensed asset limit of 500 assets.
